Subject: Nonsense Squared remains Nonsense
If it were too that our "rights" were limited (including Freedom of Speech etc) most of those self-styled haters of America who have posted their diatribes here would be in prison already.

The truth is we are as free as is it is possible to be unless one just drops out completely and goes off and lives in a cave somewhere.

The fact is, you all enjoy the benefits of living in this society, decent roads, health care, freedom to worship or not, an internet that lets you browse any website anywhere with no repercussions, etc.

What you hate is having to grow up and accept the responsibilities that go with the benefits.

Poor you.

As for this paper...it is a peace of history from a time when we still hsd the draft, and blacks hadn't been integrated into our society as much as they have now. Back then a Black President would have been inconceivable.

For this reason I give it five stars. It said something that needed saying at the time.

Subject: Beck power and fear
Having read the manifesto and as many of the reviews as I could stomach, it becomes painfully obvious why democracy doesn't seem to stand a chance of surviving the "dark renaissance of the 21st century." It appears that "Joe Average" in America is dumber than ever and the "Information Age" provided by the computer and the communication technolution is going to facilitate this trend toward idiocy. It is apparent by the rants of the right wing patriobots who drink the Beck cool-aid that freedom and liberty are concepts beyond the grasp of the man who watches too much TV. While the initial thoughts of the manifesto embraced the notion of freedom for all of mankind it quickly invoked the ideology of socialism, which is clearly beyond the ability of western man to ponder much less understand. It is here, for all intents and purposes, synonymous with communism, a system of government we have been educated to despise. Yet look around you, has our business community taken our entire industrial capacity to communist China? Has our government used our tax money to help industry cast our economy into despair by subsidizing the sellout of America to communist China? What have you pinhead zealots to say about that? You working class fools who support the conservative class which has betrayed us all, along with the spineless democrats who have become right wing boot lickers are going to be the downfall of humanity if you don't wake up. Stop living in the past with your notions that the politics of the 60's have any relevance today. The imperialists that the weatherman were so enraged about have embraced communism and are today milking the communist masses for their profit and to our despair. Where is their patriotism? Most of the members of the SDS are now members of the Better Business Bureau and have embraced capitalism. But capitalism has sold out its own base, the working man, and you as yet are blind to the implications and ignorant of the repercussions that must surely follow. Why do you hate Obama, since he is a better Bush than Bush ever was? Admit it you're racist pigs! When it comes to putting us in debt and destroying democracy, nobody tops the GOP.

I found this text in plain text format at

http://www.antiauthoritarian.net/sds_wuo/weather/weatherman_document.txt

I created the PDF myself and uploaded it here, admittedly without attribution, or the bibliographical data I have more recently added to my uploads.

When this document was featured on the Glenn Beck program I submitted it to be listed on the Online Books Page. OBP editor John Mark Ockerbloom took the trouble of finding the original magazine in which the manifesto was published, New Left Notes, June 18, 1969, on microfilm and uploaded a copy of the whole issue onto archive.org.

http://www.archive.org/details/NewLeftNotesJune181969

Now I hope this settles the question how this of this now infamous document came to the public's attention.

Wow . I don't ever think I've seen this .
I wish the book was in the dust bin of history , but it is not . Yet .
We spent so much blood and treasure winning ( Thank God ) the Cold War overseas that what do you know , it mutated to an American version antithetical to core American values . We are the one's now with the apparatchiks , limited freedom of speech and a tax system penalizing production . What fun .
Let's do the Alinsky . Hottest craze around .
btw - Cap lock is rarely one's friend .
And 5 stars means you really liked the book . Some of your reviews don't quite match up .

It is reviews like jquinn9000 that really open up the vista of insanity that is the defender's lot to this tripe. Did anyone read that whole long drivel, with the pseudo-intellectual wood paneling of an argument, wrapped in legal codes of one's own choosing. If you thought the other person's argument so far beneath contempt why bother?
Oh, I guess by that long and seemingly well researched answer it is not beneath contempt. I wonder which review is worse.

Holy crap, where to start? I suppose for Satan's Nemesis, people who "demonstate" things would tend to be anathema. But seriously ...

18 USC 1091 is the federal law making genocide a crime in the U.S. We were obligated to pass this by the International Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (1948), part of which obligated all signatories to pass laws specifically outlawing it in their separate countries, which we didn't get around to for 39 years! It's called the "Proxmire Act" because Senator Proxmire vowed to bring it up on the Senate floor every day until it passed, which it finally did in 1987. I was working as a law school reference librarian in Washington State that year, and I remember visiting "Fort Spokane," a historic site on the Columbia River, where they had a little automated slide show on the history of the place, with a fella talkin' in a goofy sorta pioneer voice over some cutesie pioneer banjo music, narratin'. One of the things he said was, (to paraphrase), "The fort became an Indian school in [some specific year, showing a picture of Native American children lined up on the steps in little Catholic school suits and dresses], but it was discovered that Native cultural patterns were too hard to eradicate, so the school was eventually closed." I knew as I listened that the behavior he talked about -- forcibly transferring children from one racial group to another -- had just been made a federal crime, punishable (if their activities resulted in the death of any of the victims, as routinely occurred in these "Indian schools" when children were made to stand naked in the snow for several hours as a punishment for some trivial offense, or died in childbirth delivering the offspring of the priests who raped them), by a million dollar fine, life imprisonment, and/or DEATH. Ha ha, yup, native cultural patterns were hard to eradicate, yup. Death penalty offense, yup!

So anyway I have no idea what "the weathermen" did to this gentleman and his family that caused them to be "genocided," but unless they form in and of themselves a complete "national, ethnic, racial, or religious group," it wouldn't qualify as "genocide" under the statute anyway -- and if they did, it would only then if they had been destroyed "as such." You see this a lot in these Glenn Beck/Tea Party/Psycho Fringe rants, where they latch on to some government document, academic treatise, journal article, or 40-year-old Weather Underground pamphlet, rarely having anything at all to do with any relevant issue at hand, and hold it up on the basis of some bizarre misinterpretation as the vindication of everything they think, feel and believe; in this case, to cite 18 USC 1091 because it says "genocide" on it, when you believe, (I suppose, e.g.), that having to register your guns amounts to being "genocided" by President Obama and The Weathermen. It illustrates a severe problem with literacy in this country, made all the more tragic and ironic by the fact that so many lawmakers and commentators of this stripe -- including, notably, Virginia Foxx, newly appointed chairwoman of the House Higher Education Subcommittee -- oppose government funding of any kind, at any level, for education. To walk the conspiracy plank off the other side of this ship, I have to say that it makes perfect sense for them. In the case of slimewads like Boehner who clearly ought to know how inherently dangerous it is, digging this hole deeper and deeper provides them with more and more of the sad, gullible citizens without whom they could never hope to muster any substantial support for their candidates or policies, while Foxx, Cantor, and their ilk seem to have been dredged up from the hole itself. Shame on all of them.

Here's the text of the Proxmire act by the way, in case unlike Mr. nemisisofsatan your opinion of its contents or applicability depends for you in any respect on actually having read anything other than its title ...

Subject: a faulty vision based on a false view of society
Like so many of the weather underground propaganda writings, this one takes on a elitist egotistical filled air of condemnation against what many of the leaders would later become, the elite of society.

Even now as members of the elite in the society, they still rant against the elite in society much as they did in the day. Dohrn in a video on you tube, Ayers with speeches around the country.

One can only think they believe themselves to be above the elite that must be eliminated as they certainly are not shy of taking advantage of their financial or social good fortune now.

Subject: Historical Document
I am more than mildly amused by the outpour of indignant diatribes posted here against the Weathermen Manifesto.

The document they find so upsetting, written in 1969, is much more a product of the time and commentary on a point in American history than a roadmap of the political direction of any current organization or party.

To quote Mark Rudd, from his website ( http://www.markrudd.com ) "I suggest that our job now is to rediscover and recreate the old organizing model, which of necessity is democratic and nonviolent."

Being afraid of the Weathermen Manifesto today is equal to being afraid of William Burroughs' Naked Lunch. The manuscript created public upset and was banned in Boston in 1965. The authors, the critics, and other reasonable people, have evolved and moved on.

Subject: The SDS has been PROGRESSIVELY destroying America
During the mid-sixties, my university, just like dozens of others across the country, saw the Saul Alinsky inspired development of the campus organization known as the Students for a Democratic Society, or SDS, parent organization of the Weathermen. They were always looking for new recruits and it seems that they confused my libertarian philosophy with their collectivist philosophy (I had gotten their attention by marching, as the only white person, with African-American students in an anti-segregation protest, where hundreds of oponents of this movement were screaming epithets at me that indicated they would like nothing more than to see me dead).

One day three of the campus SDS leaders (each with the requisite copy of Mau Tse Dung’s little red book, titled “quotations of Chairman Mau” in his shirt pocket, and looking like a Che Guevera wannabee), gave me their sales pitch and what they told me chilled me to the bone.

They told me that in their opinion, and in that of most of their fellow SDS members, the evils and wrongs of the world all came from America, and that we needed to “fundamentally change the system”, that we must bring down the 4 pillars of the establishment:
1) Our Democratic-Republic (along with the Constitution that created it)
2) Judeo-Christian culture
3) American sovereignty, backed up by our military might
4) All vestiges of free-market capitalism.

These, they said, must be replaced with a “benign world socialist government", with a worship of the Earth replacing our established religions.

To achieve these goals, they and their fellow SDS members would, upon graduation, pursue careers in which they could become as influential as possible in:
1) The Media
2) The Universities
3) The Courts.

By that they meant each of these hundreds of thousands of SDS members would strive to do one of the following:
1) Attain a position of influence in the print and broadcast media, from which they could make a difference in the selection process of those whose opinions could be read in the major newspapers and heard on radio and TV.
2) Try to become the head of a university department (especially of philosophy and the humanities), from which they could influence the hiring of the type of college professors that would meet their approval, and get granted tenure.
3) Go to law school and try to attain a position as a judge, from which one could establish new legal precedents, and thus “legislate from the bench”.

In addition, if the opportunity arose, try to influence the thinking of rising stars in the fields of politics and entertainment. Can you say Bill Ayres? Can you say Bernardine Dohrn? Can you say Van Jones?

Sadly, with the election of Barack Obama, this quiet, subversive destruction of America has taken a quantum leap forward. Saul Alinski knew what he was doing when he wrote the handbook for these cerebrally challenged "Lenin's useful ideots", Rules for Radicals. He knew that a formal subversive group, complete with secret "cells" and passwords would not last a minute. Instead he brainwashed hundreds of thousands of America's youth (Chris Mathews called him "one of my heroes from the 60's") into believing that they were individual crusaders. None of them need ever communicate with any of the others for this evil sociopath's plan to succeed.

Sadly, they seem to have done just that. Now it is up to the Tea Party patriots to form their own united front and engage them with an epic "Clash of the Titans" and win or die. We must stand behind the line in the sand and be willing to fight to the death to defend our Alamo. We must be "brave, courageous and bold", we must fight in the internet, we must fight in the Tea Party protests, we must stand with Glenn on August 28th, We must NEVER SURRENDER.

Subject: Your not free if you just think you are
There is only one reason that a group of disidents, or weather undergrounders would go after the American way of life. It has to be for power. money, and dominance over other Americans. How can you describe the group of people that would do this? First of all they think that they are smarter than you, better than you, bigger than you, and richer than you, and that they know what is best for you. Be not mistaken that it is only for their own gain. Certainly they don't want the money, without the power, the smarts without the power or the bigger without the real power. All you have to do is look at Chavez, Castro and the lot. You think they are for the people? Do you think Hitler was for the people? This kind of arrogance and elitism causes each of us to look at one another and say "I'm better than you because I am different than you". Rampant Racism. Rampant division of this nation. The communist manifesto states that the communists will take over the education system the government and every entity of our lives without ever firing a shot. I may have stated it simply but you get the point. If people are afraid to be free they will cling to the idea of someone being in charge of their lives. With freedom comes responsibility for yourself and your family. This is how a movement of this type takes hold. After Obama was elected some woman thought he was going to pay her mortgage. Interesting, why would she have said that? Those who want to cling to welfare and handouts need to find another country. There are plenty of them out there. America we need to stick to the ideals of a republic and protect it at all costs from those who would do it harm. We didn't come this far to fall asleep at the wheel. WAKE UP AMERICA!

Subject: You Don't Need A Weatherman To Know Which Way the Wind Blows
Vote them out.

I have just read the text of the radical Weatherman on Glenn Beck's website.

It is now our responsibility as Americans to stand up for our country and each other and to reject this radical nonsense.

President Obama is a very gracious liar as are members of his staff.

We all need to contact our elected officials, and to persist even when we are inevitably ignored, stating our opposition to their policies and demanding the repeal of these 1,000-page bills.
Also, the practice of billions of our tax dollars sent to foreign governments infuriates me. We do not owe these people a living on our dime.

Also, the catering to those infiltrating our country must be halted and NO amnesty. We are a nation of laws, not excuses. The mantra of "we just want to work" inevitably leads to charges of racism when Hispanics cannot get their way. These people need to return to their own country and to picket their own governments rather than ours. I refuse to be bullied by criminals.
Those members of Congress who commit crimes and fraud, such as Charlie Rangel, should face more than a slap on the wrist. If another American who is not a politician was a tax cheat, that person would be facing prison and a huge fine.

Also, all this nonsense of members of Congress patting themselves on the back needs to stop. Senator Kerry wanted to allocate funds for a monument to Senator Ted Kennedy, a man who left a young woman to drown. How can a citizens keep re-electing such a person? Former Governor and President Clinton ran a drug operation in Arkansas, before his presidency, and it resulted in the deaths of two 17-year-old boys, who were unlucky enough to witness a drug transaction and no one has been arrested for that crime, no doubt due to it being related to an elected official.

Also, parents need to take back the education as well as the government. All teachers should be required to provide parents with a syllabus for each school year and to keep their personal agenda out of the classroom.

Also, our state and local governments treat citizens with disdain and lack of respect. I had a case in Pasadena, Texas, where I attempted to bring a court case for damages to my property and had to pay to do so, then, because it took more time than the clerk wanted, told me as much; she was right my case was never heard and I was out $90.00.

These are the abuses of our government and it is our duty to correct them.

Subject: Don't fall for the Oppressive Progressive Movement
What is sad for me is that women are falling for this crap. Obama is following this manifesto, and the women are oohing and ahhing over this wingnut! Of course he seems charming, of course he seems like he wants what is best for us. But what the Obama opressives aren't telling women is how he plans to USE them. Wake up women and smell the decaf!

If you missed the interview with the FBI agent who infiltrated the Weathermen, you missed the part where the group was planning on executing the people who couldn't be re-programmed with this drivel.

I'm giving this article the lowest rating because it is rife with grammatical errors (goes to show how ignorant the original writers really were), and because of the criminal intent the Weathermen had, and still have, towards Americans. They truly are home grown terrorists and should be treated like the traitors they still are.

Subject: Communists -don't they get it, it doesn't work?
Brief intro, i am from the UK, my parents came here after the war to escape Russian/communist occupation of Poland, i have direct experience of what life is like in a communist country.
I accidentally came across the Glen Beck show one night about 6 months ago and have become a great fan.
It is genuinely frightening what these extremists are trying to achieve, not only in the USA but their reach & influence is spreading globally.
Do they not see what history has shown us happens in all the countries that end up under communist/dictatorial rule, never mind the millions that are put into concentration camps/executed; the people live lives like caged animals.
The current system may not be perfect but it is utopia compared to how they wish us to live, that's why i don't get it?
Is it a case of them not wanting to lose face that they carry on with their revolution and hope it will be "differnt this time"? It's a minority that is by stealth imposing their ideology onto a majority who are "happy" with the present system, our own homegrown version of the Taliban!
It frightens me that someone like Glen who is percieved to be an "enemy" to their cause could, God forbid, end up following in the footsteps of one of his heroes Martin Luther King - i hope not but i would not put it past them.....

Subject: This is still a Republic!
For the Progressives, liberals, Democrats, and anyone else that believes that the Constitution is archaic and not relevant today. A body of knowledge is based upon facts, not opinion, so, perhaps you should be asking questions as to why "Tea Party" people and other "Patriots" say what they say, not just what they say.
“You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink.” There is another line, when the horse realizes how thirsty he is, how much he needs the water, he will drink.

The information you are getting and relying on, are you drinking water or Kool-Aid? Going to the source typically sidesteps the rhetoric and opinions. If you are seriously interested in finding answers to your questions about what and why our Founders went through, here is a starting point. Two of my favorite books on the subject of the founding of our Republic are:

Subject: "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is"
I am pleased to see such articulate comments, and well researched ones too! I have something very simple to say to the Weather Underground: Put your money where your mouth is! If they believe that their clothes, TV, and other possessions belong to others elsewhere, then I say RETURN THEM to their "rightful" owners! These people look well-dressed, have good jobs, likely have nice houses, and are even associates of the President; why, if they believe what they say, are they not taking an oath of poverty and living like nuns? Lead by example people! When all these folks give away everything they have worked for, then they may ask...ASK...others to do the same. As of right now, we are still free to say no.

One may be tempted to discount the philosophies of the WM as the rantings of lunacy and some kind of joke but it is not! Who would've ever thought that a person could ascend to the highest office in America and would surround himself by true believers of this manifesto.

Thank God Americans are starting to wake up thanks to people like Glenn Beck people have discovered a hunger to fill the void in the history we were never taught in the Constitution we had taken for granted, but as in the birth of our country as our founders firmly believed we cannot restore what has been lost without God's help.

Subject: It's not just happening in America
I've sent copies of this revealing document to friends in Australia. On a smaller scale, the same thing is happening here.

Our Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, was installed by progressive power brokers in her party and supported by the unions after they disposed of former PM Rudd. Rudd was useless and dangerous however Australians have been denied the opportunity to vote him out.

Ms Gillard admitted she was a socialist in the past and tried unsucessfully to downplay her involvement. She said she was a meagre typist but she was much more as some in our media have reported.

We've seen similar waste through stimulus packages, Government investment in Toyota/green cars, massive rorts in the Building the Education Revolution (nice title :-\ ) where the Government is building school halls in schools with no students, or at massively inflated prices plus the march towards cap and trade. They've told us cap and trade is dead, but it's just been mothballed until after the election on 21 August.

We're also seeing totally biased reporting in the media.

Thanks Glenn for your passion - sometimes we could swap the word America for Australia and the message is still the same. Something is very wrong here too.

I find it more than disturbing that Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are now well-respected professors and teaching our youth. Of course, this is no accident. And, the fact that Jeff Jones, also one of the authors of this piece of treasonous work, is writing our bills today. Treason should be a punishable crime today. And then there's congress and the press. Both are complicit and irrelevant!

Subject: For smart people these folks sure are dumb
Revolutions in and of themselves are not always bad things. We as Americans can certainly attest to that. I would not attempt on any level to defend the contents of this blatantly treasonous manifesto however to not admit that there exists a power elite in the US holding on to a position of protected self-interest to the exclusion and in many cases the detriment of the vast majority of us every day Americans would also be to turn a blind eye to the reality of which we all live in as working class Americans.

That being said….so what! My life is pretty dam good! The USA has still created the wealthiest, greatest, most free, most pro citizen government in the history of the world. This great experiment that the founding fathers had the insight and intestinal fortitude to bring to life has no comparison past or present.

These weatherman, these self proclaimed guardians of the proletariat who pretend to stand on principles of human rights and equality and social justice are nothing more than delusional, self important, overindulgent, phonies. Worst of all their self belief in their supposed “enlightened” superior intellects over the masses, their most dangerous and delusional trait is laughable.

Look, we have a long way to go to achieving a true colorblind society which holds as it core ethos a meritocracy. But what these idiots don’t get or worse they do, is that socialism and communism have historically proven to do exactly the opposite! Every experiment in that direction has ended in fascism or worse and placed the people they allegedly stand for, the average person, into the worst possible despair imaginable.

Why would they espouse socialism and communism? How can they make a legitimate argument that those systems will provide a better way of life for the average citizen than what we have today? This to me is the most damming evidence against them and their followers. It means they are either really really dumb, which I don’t think they are, or they have undisclosed motives which have nothing to do with their proclaimed revolutionary reasons.

Subject: Just So You All Know Where The Name Came From
There are a lot of very interesting comments regarding the manifesto and various stories attributing the name to one thing or another. I am sure that many know this but just for the heck of it, I will give you the real source of this name, YOU DON'T NEED A WEATHERMAN TO KNOW WHICH WAY THE WIND BLOWS. It's from a very popular Bob Dylan Song entitled, "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Here are the lyrics.

Johnny’s in the basement
Mixing up the medicine
I’m on the pavement
Thinking about the government
The man in the trench coat
Badge out, laid off
Says he’s got a bad cough
Wants to get it paid off
Look out kid
It’s somethin’ you did
God knows when
But you’re doin’ it again
You better duck down the alley way
Lookin’ for a new friend
The man in the coon-skin cap
By the big pen
Wants eleven dollar bills
You only got ten

Maggie comes fleet foot
Face full of black soot
Talkin’ that the heat put
Plants in the bed but
The phone’s tapped anyway
Maggie says that many say
They must bust in early May
Orders from the D.A.
Look out kid
Don’t matter what you did
Walk on your tiptoes
Don’t try “No-Doz”
Better stay away from those
That carry around a fire hose
Keep a clean nose
Watch the plain clothes
You don’t need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows

Get sick, get well
Hang around a ink well
Ring bell, hard to tell
If anything is goin’ to sell
Try hard, get barred
Get back, write braille
Get jailed, jump bail
Join the army, if you fail
Look out kid
You’re gonna get hit
But users, cheaters
Six-time losers
Hang around the theaters
Girl by the whirlpool
Lookin’ for a new fool
Don’t follow leaders
Watch the parkin’ meters

Ah get born, keep warm
Short pants, romance, learn to dance
Get dressed, get blessed
Try to be a success
Please her, please him, buy gifts
Don’t steal, don’t lift
Twenty years of schoolin’
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
Better jump down a manhole
Light yourself a candle
Don’t wear sandals
Try to avoid the scandals
Don’t wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The pump don’t work
’Cause the vandals took the handles

Subject: The war is already claiming innocent lives.
I was in the U.S. Army and was discharged in '78' but I too took that oath. Unfortunately, I know from first hand experience, that whole american families are being subjected to Apartheid and Genocide (See United States Code Section TITLE 18:Sec. 1091), by the weathermen. They routinely use a Hegelian stratagy with a machiavellian twist and spin to justify their overt acts of war against American Citizens, My family was genocided by them in the State of Utah in January 2003. Acting under Color of Law, they have demonstated that nothing is sacred to them but the furtherance of their own cause, Corrupted Police, Lawyers, Doctors, Judges, they have infiltated every level of the infrastuction of government and live in complete denial of their homicidal sociopathic tendencies to hunt down and exterminate any American who fears God, Believes in and Upholds the Constitution, and practices political ponerolgy (The scientific study of evil adjusted for political purposes). It has been over 7-1/2 years now and my family still remains in a condition of genocide by their fabricated emergency, with no relief in sight. I would like to expose all of these traitors and hold them accountable for purjuring their oaths of office, and breaching their fiduciary contracts. But I know that I am only one of the many walking wounded, in our country, that should have died fighting for my family, If was will to die for my country, how much more so, for our posteriety. There evil knows no bounds, and there is no lie to low for them to tell, I've found the Utah Court System, just another extension of the old star chamber justice, where the record reflects any opinion but the truth.

Only read the first page so far, but this document sounds completely crazy. I was a pre-teen when many of the college campus riots were taking place. I remember reading about Kent State and hearing the song "Four Dead In Ohio."I remember listening to my dad's opinions and not being sure what to believe. I loved the music of the 60's and 70's, but did not really read much of what was being written about the 60's revolution. I loved and admired my dad, but thought he was probably a little too worried about "the crazies" and the "socialists." I didn't see any real evidence that the government or our way of life was being threatened. I thought it was all about changing social injustices and racial inequalities. I was and still am a conservative Christian, so I wanted to help people. I was all for helping the downtrodden. I didn't see any problem with guys wearing longer hair. But, I never sanctioned a lifestyle of drugs and free sex. I was proud of my country and patriotic like my dad, and all I saw was healthy new energy and debate. Dad and I had some lively discussions. I am now 54 years old, and my dad has been gone since 1987. If he were here, I would have to apologize to him for the things I thought and argued for. He was right! There WERE people who were trying to fundamentally change/destroy our way of life. This document is proof. It makes me sad and angry. I'm sad because I love this country, and I don't want it changed fundamentally. I want it to be the country that my dad defended as a marine in World War II, and the country that was full of people with Christian and family values, a country where a person with a good idea and plenty of pure-hearted optimism and energy could dream big dreams and make them come true. I will stand and defend those beliefs. But, I don't understand or agree with the people who wrote this manifesto. I am sobered and frightened that those same people are influential in our government today.

I have not had a chance to read the "manifesto" but printed it to read tomorrow morning over my coffee. However, the first couple paragraphs should astound everyone. Shame no one reads or studies what is going on with our country and our freedom. My husband put in over 22 years in the Air Force to protect our freedom. Never did we know that a man, a black man (malato) who could go out in history as the best president we ever had, turned out country into pure crap for his own beliefs. I wait and wait for anyone in the news media to ask him one question, "IF YOU DON'T LIKE OUR COUNTRY WHY DON'T YOU GET THE HELL OUT OF IT!" Why should we have to change for HIS ideas. We aren't. HE HAS TO LEAVE, NOT US. What a shame the Demo's keep handing him over our freedom. I use to be a die hard Demo. No more. I want nothing to do with them. They are embarrassing! But us, the hard working people, we lose everything and Obama made multi-millions since being in his seat and has not given a mere pittance to the poor. If you don't work, you don't get. (This means to those who stay home on their lazy asses and think they can suck our blood NO MATTER WHAT COLOR, RACE, RELIGION, OR WHATEVER YOU ARE).

I can’t rate the document as I see it as a manifesto for the destruction of our Republic, but I am happy to be able to find it via the archives and see so many others who share the concern about those who were behind this document occupying key positions within government.

Reviewer: Greebo - 1.00 out of 5 stars - July 28, 2010
Subject: The key to underatanding Marxism
The first thing to remember is that Marxism was designed by a dysfunctional sociopath as a tool for sociopaths to rule the world.

Second, never forget that sociopaths can not feel or understand many of the things that normal people feel and understand. They cannot feel compassion, guilt or love. They grow up in a world where they must act a role in order to fit in and function in society. They learn to act, and to manipulate others, in order to get along. They are often excellent actors and amazingly good at manipulation. Normal people often find them to be very charismatic and exciting to be around. It is so much easier to charm others when you are free to lie to them.

Sociopaths do not understand why they should not have an egocentric 'me first and me only' philosophy, This is only logical to them. Any other attitude is incomprehensible to them. They may comply with human ethics and morals in order to stay out of trouble, or they may make an exciting game of doing as they please and seeing how much they can get away with. They often feel superior because they are not bound by the incomprehensible feelings and morals that make normal people so easy to manipulate.

Because they regard any family they may acquire as a possession like a car, they are not emotionally tied to them in the same way a normal person is. They may feel possessive and proud of them, but are not truly concerned with their feelings and welfare. Marx wanted to wed a beautiful noble woman, but would not work to support her and their family. He spent his time in the library writing his great work or drinking with his sycophants. At least one of their children died of starvation, and one or more because of their abject poverty. Two of his daughters committed suicide. When he was given a large amount of money by a relative, he spent it on new clothing for himself, a trip to Germany for himself, and drinking with whomever would listen to his arrogant pontificating.

Is this the sort of person who could be capable of designing a Utopian society? Could this be why Marxist societies are always pathological societies ruled by psychopaths?

Why then is Marxism such a powerful force in the world? Because it is an electrifying ideology to sociopaths. It is the first one, and the only one, that they truly understand and which makes perfect sense to them. It makes them the elite rulers instead of the despised (when they are recognized as lacking in human compassion and moral feeling) outsiders. To them, it is the work of a genius. It is a plan for making the world theirs and ending the confusing nonsense of normal healthy human civilization.

Because their lives are not dominated by normal human concerns of love and family, they can focus intensely on any project they find exciting, such as manipulating the masses with lies and deceit to become enslaved by a state that monitors and dictates every aspect of their lives. It is a splendid game for them which makes them feel superior and important. They band together and devote their full efforts to winning. They find it easy to recruit armies of ner-do -wells with their charisma and flattery that they are going to be important people by serving a noble cause. Even normal people are taken in by these people and their manipulation.

We need to learn to recognize these sociopaths and not allow them to gather followers who empower them to enslave and murder millions of people. They cannot prevail if we do not fall for their threats, promises, and charisma. We need to stand up to them and hang together before we hang separately.

We need to look into this human caused global warming scam and know the truth. It takes time and effort but it is necessary. Remember scientists follow scientific method not consensus, and computer programs cannot accurately predict weather for more than a week, especially if they are fed erroneous information. We do not want to give government total control of our economy and our lives because a guy, who got a D in his one college science course, claims there will be a catastrophe if we don't make him a billionaire by making everyone buy his carbon credits. There is a huge amount of money and power at stake here. Take some time and examine this carefully. Our lives depend upon it. This is a power grab of monumental proportions.

We need to understand why certain people want unrestricted immigration, and why it is necessary to make sure immigrants are not criminals and that they want to participate in a healthy society and become good citizens. It will do no one any good if immigrants are used to transform this nation into another socialist gulag that needs fences to keep people in. Immigrants need to learn how to vote responsibly and wisely or they may be better off living elsewhere. Importing millions of people who do not understand how our government was designed to function (especially prior to Progressive-socialist meddling) and why this nation is so prosperous and able to function with maximum freedom and opportunity for a variety of people, and having them vote for the most compelling propaganda will fundamentally transform this nation into one profoundly different.

Selling our ability to chose our health care and medical privacy to the government for government controlled health care was not an intelligent idea. No one will benefit from this. Our health care and our lives will be controlled by government bureaucrats who are not elected or responsible to us. Where will we go when we are refused procedures necessary for our quality or quantity of life? Perhaps the Brits will dump their inhuman socialist system soon and we can go there. If we are allowed. In the meantime all of our information will be collected by this government and we will pay a huge price for government grade care controlled by people who know nothing about health care. Humans do not have interchangeable parts like Fords and physicians require more judgment and latitude than mechanics. This is not something government bureaucrats are capable of understanding. Our system was not perfect, but it was the best available. It will be far worse in the near future.

Please learn to vote for honest capable people who understand how to function in the real world and run real businesses instead of charismatic handsome lawyers who think they should rule the inferior masses but cannot balance their own checkbooks.

Federal law requires everyone who enlists or re-enlists in the Armed Forces of the United States to take the enlistment oath. The oath of enlistment into the United States Armed Forces is administered by any commissioned officer to any person enlisting or re-enlisting for a term of service into any branch of the military. The officer asks the person, or persons, to raise their right hand and repeat the oath after him. The oath is traditionally performed in front of the United States Flag and other flags, such as the state flag, military branch flag, and unit guidon may be present.

First off, I give this document, 'You Don't Need A Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows', ZERO STARS, because that is precisely what it's worth, absolutely, positively NOTHING... So, without further adieu...

NEVER, in the entire history of our species existence, has ‘socialized’ anything, society, finance, religion, healthcare or even government ,has ever really truly worked, and it NEVER WILL, for one simple reason, we are Human Beings, living on a fiercely wild and unforgiving speck of dust, quite literally in the middle of nowhere… As a species, we are ALL, each and every one of us, are seriously flawed creatures, products of a world, where survival of the fittest has been, and will forever be, the one simple and defining principle by which we exist, grow, flourish and eventually die.

No Human or no ‘thing’ on this planet is capable of ever changing that one simple rule, regardless of those delusional Marxist liberalist, whatever their maniacal ravings might try to say, or do, no matter how hard they wish, manipulate or try. As such, regardless of how Communism is packaged, no matter how it’s dressed up and / or designed, no matter how it’s disguised, no matter how it’s stated, no matter how it’s implemented, secretly or openly, and most importantly no matter who states it, NEVER EVER TRULY MEANS IT as said. At least not in the way it’s stated, and most definitely NOT for the reason(s) WHY they state it...

Humankind, male or female, newborn, young, and adults, have but seven primary and persistent imperatives during their entire lifespan, however short or long, those being food to eat, a place to live, sex, the accumulation of wealth, and most importantly ‘for Marxists anyway’, the accumulation of not just power, but absolute power over others, i.e. TOTAL and COMPLETE CONTROL. Their sole purpose is for them to remain IN POWER, all the while serving their TRUE Lord and Master(s), MONEY + POWER. Still, they seem to have no end to their appetite for money, power and hence control of the masses, so they continue to work tirelessly, in an effort to continually accumulate still more wealth and more power endlessly, until they take their final breath and most fortunately for us all, depart this world. As every rational human on this planet knows, we know these truths to be self-evident; ‘Money IS the root of all evil’, and ‘Power Corrupts, Absolute Power Corrupts, AB-SO-LUTE-LY’. No wiser words have ever been spoken. To these self-centered, self-important warmongering control freaks, ‘All Men are NOT created equal’ either in their mind, body or in their eyes !!! These extremist zealots, represent a ‘Clear and Present’ Danger to not only the United States of America, but to each and every democracy on the face of this tiny and ever shrinking planet.

Communism, in whatever form, throughout history, and no matter the way, shape, manner or form in which those who profess it’s ‘alleged’ benefits for the masses ‘sell it’ to their targeted VICTIMS, has ever benefited the very masses ‘they’ say it is all for. A case in point, is the crock of maniacal psycho-babble rants and raves titled “You Don’t Need a Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows”. It was designed from its very foundation, NOT TO SERVE THE MASSES, but is REALLY meant to serve ONLY those who have placed themselves in positions of POWER, for two reasons, and two reasons ONLY… Those reasons being the rapid accumulation of Wealth and Power ( all STOLEN and / or subverted from the Citizens of this Nation – through the enactment of insanely complex rules, regulations, bills and laws. Other cases in point, are Obama’s ENTIRELY BOGUS SOCIAL REFORMS, such as Obama-Care ( 2,300 Pages + the creation of more than 200 New Bureaus and Agencies ), and Obama-Bank ( 2,000+ pages, and damn near Obama-Smoke & Mirrors, also known as Cap & Trade, or more aptly Control & Steal. So, just who do we, the Citizens of the United States of America owe our thanks and appreciation to, for SCAMMING & CRAMMING Obama’s assigned ‘Fundamental Pieces of a new Communist Foundation ), into law in the form of, bills for which more than 70% of Americans DID NOT and still DO NOT WANT ??? This is why our illustrious President, none other than Barak ( Barry ) BOHICA ‘Redistribution of Wealth’ Obama and his hand-picked buddy Tsars, so urgently needs his soldiers in place ( such as the appointment of Obama’s buddy Ben Bernake ) !!! ALL of this crap, is thanks to our openly Socialist El Presidente, and his myriad of mysteriously appointed Tsars ( wonder why he chose the ‘Marxist’ term, Tsars, Hmmm ??? ), ALL who have been very carefully and very selectively put in place, in all of the right places, with virtually no opportunity whatsoever for either our duly elected Members of Congress, or the Senate, or the General Public for that matter, to publicly and most importantly openly debate either the necessity or practicality of such far reaching POWER GRABBING appointments, virtually all of which have been made up of openly and proudly confessed, extreme leftist / progressive Communists, all without the consent of either the House, Senate or General Public !!!

Despite what anyone with more than half a brain and at least a High School understands, much less an elite ‘Haaaverd’ ( intentionally misspelled ) education might say, I invite and defy ANYONE, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, to explain to the Citizens of this Great Nation, as well as we misguided Capitalists and / or Conservatives, and believers in Democracy, using ONLY logical, realistic and rational terms, how and why any of this is not 110% FACTUAL & TRUE, and will forever remain true, so long as Humans exist. Furthermore, I hereby formally challenge and defy any Liberal Democrat, Progressive / Leftist, Marxist Communist ( who MURDERED more than 50 MILLION of their own people, to institute the Marxist brand of Communism, or Maoist Communist ( who MURDERED more than 70 MILLION of their own people, to institute the Maoist brand of Communism ), ANYWHERE on the face of this planet, throughout the planets entire history, to TRUTHFULLY, and LOGICALLY JUSTIFY or LOGICALLY demonstrate PRECISELY HOW and WHY anything that I have stated thus far, is not 110% FACTUAL and TRUE !!!

My beloved Citizens of this Nation, the bottom line is this… OUR GREAT NATION IS UNDER ATTACK, AT THIS VERY MOMENT, FROM A MOST INSIDIOUS ENEMY WHO IS COLLECTIVELY OPERATING FROM WITHIN THE CONFINES OF OUR OWN GOVERNMENT !!! In fact, only three elements remain for them accomplish, to put them in a position to finally TAKE OVER and finally TAKE CONTROL, before they can render our great Constitution and Declaration of Independence impotent and meaningless. Next, they desperately need a means of generating a long-term source of massive amounts of income ( Cap & Trade ), the Media ( ever wonder why FoxNews is the ONLY TV based news outlet left, who still REPORTS the TRUTH ), before they can begin the actual, forcible ’TAKE OVER’ of OUR NATION, thereby turning the United States of America into THEIRS, NOT YOURS. Their goal is simple, the creation of what amounts to the Socialist States of America, where there are only two classes of people, those who have everything, and those who have nothing, which would make up 99% of our entire population !!!

Citizens of the United States of America, you must now ask yourself one simple question. It DOES NOT MATTER IN THE SLIGHTEST, what color your skin may be, or from what Nation you may come from. What DOES MATTER, and matters greatly is, to paraphrase the words of one of the absolute finest Americans to ever have walked this planet, ‘DO NOT JUDGE A MAN BY THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN, BUT BY THE CONTENT of HIS CHARACTER’ ??? My fellow Citizens, the ‘Content’ of our Presidents ‘Character’ is more than severely flawed, it is morally, ethically and demonstrably flawed, DANGEROUSLY FLAWED. This is why he shows little or no intention whatsoever of doing what the vast majority if Americans want done, despite consistently overwhelming numbers of Americans, demand he and his Tsars do, these past two years… Tell me, WHAT CAMPAIGN PROMISES HAS HE KEPT – CAN YOU NAME EVEN ONE, other than his rather ominous promise to ‘Fundamentally CHANGE America’ ??? Whatever happened to ‘transparency’, it seems that virtually everything that he and his fellow cronies actually do, is done in secret, or in the middle of the night, when no one is watching. He, and they, routinely and arrogantly use tools such as outright Lies, Fabricated Events and Opinions, Obfuscation, Bait & Switch Tactics, and God knows how many more ways, to lay the foundation of HIS and his buds, Socialist America…

In order for these HOSTILE ENEMY FORCES to move forward, THEY MUST CONTROL Congress ( DONE ), the Senate ( DONE ), the White House ( DONE ), the Financial Market(s) & Banks i.e. the ( Passed Financial ‘Reform’ Bill = DONE ), Healthcare ( Passed Health ‘Reform’ Bill = DONE ), the Media ( Isn’t it weird how only ONE Cable News Channel ( Fox News ) is covering the truly CRITICAL events taking place ), and last but most certainly not least, is perhaps the most critical element, the currently ‘free and open’ Internet, where Obama is presently seeking the installation of a ‘Chinese Type’ ( INTERNET ‘OFF’ SWITCH ) !!! Also, let’s not forget one of Obama’s principle objectives, that being his ‘Redistribution of Wealth, which just happens to be a Purely Marxist Principle. On its face, the Redistribution of Wealth sounds nice, but the type of ‘Redistribution’ that Obama has in mind, is the redistribution of wealth NOT to the people, but to HIS PEOPLE and Himself, BELIEVE IT !!!

President Obama dearly loves to hear himself repeatedly say, that he is dedicated to ‘Fundamentally Changing America’, YOU ARE ‘LITERALLY’ BETTING NOT ONLY YOUR VERY LIFE, BUT ALSO THE LIVES OF YOUR CHILDREN, GRAND CHILDREN, GREAT GRAND CHILDREN AND ON AND ON AND ON !!! These maniacs, have been and have remained wholly dedicated to the overthrow of our Democratic Nation their entire adult lives, BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY !!!

AMERICA, MAKE NO MISTAKE, WE ARE AT WAR – THIS VERY MINUTE !!! JUST AS EACH AND EVERY MEMBER OF OUR MILITARY HAS SWORN TO DEFEND OUR NATION FROM ALL ENEMIES – BOTH FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC, SO IS EACH AND EVERY CITIZEN IN THIS DEMOCRATIC NATION !!! NOW IS THE TIME TO STAND, NOW IS THE TIME TO FIGHT, BUT FIGHT INTELLIGENTLY, NOT VIOLENTLY !!! MOST IMPORTANTLY, NOW IS THE TIME TO LEARN EVERYTHING WE CAN ABOUT THIS MOST INSIDIOUS AND DESTRUCTIVE ENEMY IN OUR MIDST !!! NOW IS THE TIME TO FIGHT ‘PEACEFULLY’, AS THERE IS NO PLACE FOR VIOLENCE IN OUR EFFORTS TO IDENTIFY, TARGET, ISOLATE AND MUZZLE THESE VERMIN AND THEIR MANIACEL MARXIST METHODS, POLICIES AND JADED MIS-REPRESENTATIONS, WHEREVER THEY MAY BE, ESPECIALLY IN OUR ‘DEMOCRATIC’ GOVERNMENT – FOR ETERNITY !!! THE COLOR OF ONES SKIN IS OF NO IMPORTANCE WHATSOEVER, AS WE ARE ALL, FIRST AND FOREMOST, AMERICANS, NOT Scottish-Americans (Myself), African-Americans, Mexican-Americans, Japanese-Americans or Whatever-Americans… WAKE UP AMERICA !!! These Marxist maniacs are to a significant degree, employing Sun Tsu’s ancient warfare principles, among them that of ‘Divide and Conquer’, AND IT’S WORKING, because WE ARE LETTING THESE ANIMALS DIVIDE US, WITH PHONY AND EVEN CONTRIVED racial statements and events !!! DO NOT LET THEM DIVIDE US ANY LONGER, FOR ALL OUR SAKES !!! UNITED WE STAND… DIVIDED WE FALL !!!

Always remember: I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

From what I’ve seen, since the moment I first heard the name Barak Hussein Obama, the ‘content’ of his character is devoid of any form of tangible concern for anyone but ‘his own’ people, and by people, I mean his Leftist Marxist Fanatics, or dare I say Communist benefactors and associates and friends, or perhaps I should refer to them as fiends, no ???

Now, as for the document, and I am using this term very very very loosely, ‘You Don’t Need a Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows’, is because these COMMUNIST BASTARDS ALREADY BLOW !!! You would think, that as smart as they fancy themselves, especially with their ‘Berkley’ and ‘Haaarverd’ diploma’s, that they could have put together a far more intelligent argument, and a far better formatted document… What a truly monumental piece of butt wipe this manifesto is, TRUE GARBAGE !!!

DONG… DONG… DONG… ‘ALL HANDS’ MAN YOUR BATTLE STATIONS, WHILE WE STILL CAN AMERICA !!!

Most Respectfully,

BORG HK

The price of freedom is not free. Many have paid with their life to promote and keep freedom dear. Sadly though, America is filled with a bunch of couch potatoes that can't get out of their seat of complacency to keep our freedom. It doesn't seem to touch their lives until they can't excercise something they thought was automatic. ie medical help for a sick child. Or put their child in a private school. Or their mother is not able to get a hip replacement because she is to old and non-productive, or dispensible. Or their taxes hit the 55% catigory like they are in GB. Wake up AMERICA!!! All of this and worse is comming if we don't become a single voice. Send Washington a message. Vote them all out. And lets instigate term limits.

I downloaded it. I read it. I am reminded that these people are probably more committed to their cause than most of us are. They really believe what they are saying, whether or not it is true. They have been activeley engaged in pursuing their ends for forty years now. And now, many of us are just waking up. It is time for us to be as committed to our cause as they are to theirs. We must forget about our leisure, our comforts. We men must become actively engaged in the leadership of our families. Our wives, our children, and our grandchildren are depending on us to be men. We must become actively engaged in our churches also. Our pastors must know that we expect them to hold us to a higher standard of living, just as we expect the same level of committment from them. We must begin to speak out in our communities against all that ails our great republic. We cannot afford to remain silent any longer. We must confront compromise amongst our own ranks. We must live righteous lives. We must display character at all times. If we don't, we will be like most of our current political leaders and many of our religious leaders. We will in effect have no credibility. We must never forget what so many before us have sacrificed in our behalf to give us the freedom we enjoy. The time for complacency is over. The time for anything less than an olympic effort in overcoming the onslaught of these Marxist radicals is over. We must give it 110%. Nothing else will suffice. We must be reminded that the Marxists are relentless. They will not give up. They consider compromise a victory. So stay the course. And spread the word.

On Monday I read the Constitution. I have reread Article XXV several times since. On Wednesday I read this astounding "You Don't Need a Weatherman..." On Thursday, yesterday, I read Martin Luther King's "I have a dream" speech.
Eventhough the Weather Underground's angry document might be called "dribble", it is taken quite seriously by its authors and should be by others. The people who wrote it and those that believe in it are very close to the highest office in our land. The patterns it espouses are in evidence today. You're with them and their values or not. The individual does not exist. One does wonder where the FBI is on this threatening situation.
Upon completing "You don't need..." I couldn't help but think of Germany in 1933. I thought of the book I am reading now: "The Forty Days of Musa Dagh." It is about Turkey's extermination of the Armenians, about the power of the same type of all-powerful, indifferent government promoted by the Weather Underground. We need to be steady, continue being alert, and believe in "never again." We will protect this beautiful, dear country, our Constitution and our Declaration, standing with our arms locked together and around her forever. I am thankful for Mr. Beck and his courage. Goodness, now I understand the passengers on Flight 93. They are with us now.

The examine the photo and understand that we have never had a propaganda machine so blatant in it hatred of the USA and its founders. Latrobe's portrait was used purposely to tell the "Weathermen" that it was time to act.

To understand the "five finger salute" go to http://www.answers.com/topic/finger-gesture.

About 40% of the way down you will see what the "Members of the Weather Underground" understood by the photo showing the Second Oath:
"In some African and Caribbean countries, a similarly obscene gesture is extending all five digits with the palm facing forward, meaning "you have five fathers" (thus calling someone a bastard)."

The "photo op" was the first act of the administration that has sworn to "execute the office of president" --- "faithfully."

The first oath of office was the last time the "Big O" spoke without a teleprompter.

I spent quite a bit of time on it this evening. It's very poorly written in most parts and other parts are dated for the 60's relating to vietnam but you could easily sub current situations for those older ones vietnam = afganistan or iraq for example. There's one part that says about people that may not be willing commit to overthrow this country but they can still be used in certain situations if there is a specific issue they can be roused on to revolt against and in the end that still fowards the socialist goal. They also talk about the people that will never be swayed to support them and how we must be destroyed and they don't mean forced to comply, or pressured into accepting them. They mean removed. The end of the manifesto talks about how to form secret paramilitary groups and how to run them for the time when armed insurrection is needed. They specifically state earlier in the text that they know the enemy will not give up without a fight and they must crush us to win. Speaking of that - they mention their fondness for the black panthers several times. It says quite a lot of interesting things - it outlines very detailed ways to target specific groups of people that would be possibly susceptible to being turned to their side. For example there's a large section on how to target young people. much of which we've seen used effectively. How to target lower or middle income workers. Goes on at great lengths about blacks and the black liberation movement and how they have many similar goals. About forcing us to commit our resources to many futile things, many wars i think is phasing used- that's exactly the same thing the muslims say they want to do to us. Now when i try to reconcile the thought of muslim and socialist - many of the principals and methods are the same but do these liberals actually think the muslims will accept them into their ranks because they share similar goals for government. not hardly. I say since they both want to take us down that we should let them fight it out between themselves and leave us out of it for now, then all of us good americans can take on and defeat what's left. some truly evil stuff in this manifesto. truly evil. Between this and the black liberation theology, Mr. Beck is correct that this is the play book the liberals are using.

Subject: Collective authors arrogant self rightousness oppresses individuality
The document begins with a series of assertions, which the collective authors make no attempt to substantiate. Ironically it qualifies the United States as an imperialist nation and yet, in claiming to speak for all of the people and nations in the world, and to ignite a revolution not only in the United States but in the entire world, it is itself taking an imperialistic stance which allows no thought of differing views and opinions.

The authors speak with confusion when they say they must take the side of the peoples of the world. By definition the peoples of the world includes all the peoples of the world, inclusive of the people of the United States. Whom, then, are “peoples of the world” taking the side against? Obviously the authors believe the people of the United States are excluded from the world- and this simply is not true.

The authors demonize success. It matters not to them how the success is achieved, any one who is more successful than others becomes the “oppressor” and in so doing the authors become the real oppressors- oppressing those who would be successful enough to excel and demanding that all “the peoples of the world” maintain a common uniform and indistinguishable level of success-lest they too become the “oppressors”

The authors claim without any attempt at substantiation that the “oppressed people of the world” have created the wealth of the world. It defies all reason to submit that only an oppressed people can create wealth, but if one is to accept this absurdity, one must also accept then, that one can not be oppressed with out an oppressor and so it stands to reason that the oppressor who created the oppressed who then created the wealth, deserves some of the credit for the creation of wealth. Once again the authors are occluded from any rational “wholistic” understanding!

This is followed by a comical paragraph, in which the authors repeat the false equation, exceptionally = oppression. True to form, they fail to provide a ground for their assertions but instead pile on a word salad of unfounded accusations. There is an undercurrent of arrogance in the author’s willful omittance of analytical grounding for the opinions they put forth - as though there is no room or thought for any interpretations outside of their own. Need I say- this is oppressive to the freedom of thought.

The authors then introduce the full extent of their aims - their revolution is not for the United States alone but for the entire world, all of who are presumed to share in the author’s instructive opinions. The unsaid intolerance of differences opinions is loud and clear- and need I say oppressive?

Upon announcing their “clear goal” the authors describe a “classless society”, once again asserting their oppressive will for a homogenous mediocrity in which all excellence is a violation against the clearly mindless masses (having a mind threatens the homogeneity of the “classless society”)

After this the authors introduce racial poetics, claiming that black people as a “whole people” were brought to the United Sates as slaves. Do they not know that the United States, from its very conception included northern states, which did not participate in the institution of slavery and that northern, and later, western, states created part of the wealth of this great nation? Have they not heard about the civil war in this country, which freed the slaves in which many, white, and black gave their lives? Do they not understand that even after the ending of slavery, wealth continued to be created in the United Sates and not just by those who were already in possession of wealth- but by those two bootstrapped their way to financial exceptionally. And to think this uneducated sort is teaching our youth!

I am stopping here for the moment and will try to finish reading this document later, not because it is in any way brilliant or deserving, but because the very people who have written this gobbledygook have now become powerful enough to destroy the United States of America from within. They are the oppressors!

Hard to believe though not really that this insanity is making the rounds AGAIN. The "Utopia" that these Devils seek is a Utopia for them only. The notion that Communism could succeed is most akin to a drug induced fantasy and a bad trip at that. It has failed miserably EVERYWHERE !!! This is just another stab at toppling the United States which were it to be destroyed would find its replacement to be so horrible that words cannot describe the depth of the darkness. Is our Capitalist system in need of fine tuning? You bet it is but Communism is not the answer that is certain. Obama wants more wars so that he can help fulfill the destiny of this evil movement ie more wars, stretch the Military out thin, why do you think that he is lukewarm at best about withdrawl from Afganistan? Yes he spewed out a date of withdrawl ( which serves the purpose of killing more American Soldiers, that's what happens when you purposely tip your hand to the enemy) but as that date draws near he will flip and state that, well it's complicated. I want to get out but well we're committed. Those who voted for him and who support this call for the "Overthrow Of Imperialism" are no more than useful fools. The president is in this category. The executioner's face I'm afraid is well hidden. Someone wants to be the new kid on the block. A group of idiots think that they can rule the world forever. Won't happen. NEVER !!! Let's work like dogs to fix our system. Despite its flaws it is by far and large the best that has ever existed. All you "Weathermen" past and present, take your Bib Overalls and stick em'where the sun don't shine. See you at the barricade. So much for peace and love hey? Let Freedom Ring !!!!!!

Subject: Socialism has suceeded...Where????
It is obvious that the text of this document is the mantra by which the current administration lives. We see it in nearly every action they take, socialized health care, extending unemployment to 2-1/2 years, kowtowing to every national leader, not speaking out against stolen elections in Iran, chumming with Chavez, idolizing Mao, Castro et. al. They have been creating class division, race division, and age division, any division they can to bring and end to their goal. We are fighting against a force that will use any means possible, illegal, immoral, lies, cheat, and steal, to further their illicit cause. And what of this great socialist utopia they only speak of but never describe. Where do they ever define what is success to them. Is it when we are all starving and living under cardboard with no food, no access to medical care that they will be happy. Do they really believe that Castro went hungry when his subjects were starving, or do they just expect the "oppressed” to believe their lies. I choose the latter. Education is the only thing that will expose them for what they are, and not the kind of education offered in "their" public schools, but the kind of education we should be giving our children at home. That our freedoms and rights come from God, not some madman bent on socializing the world.

Subject: My dad was a Communist for the FBI
When I was 12, I needed something from a shelf in my parents' bedroom. I stood on a stack of newspapers to reach the shelf. When I got down, I glanced at the papers and they were copies of "The Daily Worker". I was familiar with the CPUSA (Communist Party of the United States of America" through a TV program "I Led Three Lives". I went to my mother and told her that Pop was a commie. She said "We need to talk".
From that point, he took me to the FBI office where I had conversations with the agents who "worked" him. I agreed that I would keep it a secret and that I would interact normally with folks in the groups he "organized" in for the Party.
We acted as a stop on the "Secret Railway" and often had party bigwigs stay over a day or two at our house as they moved about the country.
We spent a lot of time with organizations like the American GI Forum. I watched folks from truck drivers to bankers take part in meetings that were blatantly subversive.
Senator McCarthy may have been wrong in his methods but he was right about the danger.
We are one election away from the collapse of our system. We are where the Founders were when they signed the Declaration.
These people are dangerous and in power. Change the latter now. Remove their power. If you don't do it in November, they have the power to declare an Emergency, suspend the Constitution, stop elections and we become Cuba.

I can't believe I read the whole thing! Unfortunately, the ideas contained in this laborious piece have gained traction and have obviously been employed by the Lyin' King-- BHO-- and his administration. No surprise there. However, you might want to check out "Emergence Christianity" sometime. Leaders in this "movement" use the same or similar terminology to promote their blend of Marxist "Christianity", an oxymoron if there ever was one.

Subject: Snot nosed kids.
These are young supposedly educated kids. Even years later, they are too big for their britches.
They have operated on the premise that with redistributed wealth, each person given 10 dollars in the morning will have 10 dollars at the end of the day. This is never true. Each person makes different choices on how they spend the wealth they have and no two ever make the same choices and some never choose wisely. This fact carried out to its end will always arrive at a place where a community, a state, or a nation have nothing while others have more. There is no such thing as Nirvana at least not in this realm. Our creator made us different from all others creatures in our "free will." That makes us unique and if anyone thinks for one minute they have the answer to do away with greed, well think again. No person or group of people will ever stand for the taking of what they labor for, to help those who don't labor, without it being their own idea in the first place. Redistribution is destined to fail. I'd rather be in a capitalist society that goes corrupt rather than a socialist/communist society that goes corrupt any day. At least under capitalism you have free choices to make. Under communism you just get a bullet in the head or gas in your chamber.

Subject: Is there truth in the whirlwind?
If you don't need to be a weatherman, why does this man act like one?
He thinks he can predict the weather by creating a storm that didn't exist, but now has come. He became a prophet for the dienfrachised and the disinformed, the fearful and the frightened, the lazy and the dicontented, the undisciplined and the unwanted,the confused and ........
What this manifesto provides is actually a form of its own elitism from a group of people who are only out for themselves and their desires. They are the ones who think they never fit in anywhere so they try to make others fit into their vain imaginations because they don't want to really be a part of anything that is truly concrete and free.
Some of this stuff is actually happening. Our shools are robbeb of truth and a new kind of elitism has set in. They are the kind of people who promise freedom but actually bring forth an oppression built on a desire for a utopia built on what they think is fairness yet is robbery.
They are now the ones they were talking about in their own manifesto holding others hostage to their ideas.
Thanks for showing this to the nation Glenn for these are the people we just usually piss away but our passivity gave them a path to their fantasy.
The Lord is with you.

This "book" is full of ideas for using people to further that group's ideas.
I admit I could only read about 15 pages before I got sick. This reads like a group of self important collage kids trying to impress each other with their shiny new brains. Unfortunately the idiots are still at it and helping obama right down their path to insanity. They did not learn that the people they are infatuated with would eat them alive and never notice they were ever born.

Subject: The SIRHAN SIRHAN connection
For a bit more background on Mr. Ayers and his gang, visit http://zombietime.com/prairie_fire/ to read excerpts of the Weathermen's other "manifesto" titled Prairie Fire. Although the entire document is nauseating, the item that most triggered my gag reflex was the discovery that this book was dedicated to SIRHAN SIRHAN. For those too young to remember, Mr. Sirhan was the Arab malcontent who murdered Robert Kennedy in June, 1968. Although RFK was a liberal democrat, the Weathermen viewed him as just another enemy of the revolution, and therefore saw fit to pay homage to his killer.

Subject: Couldn't Get Through It
Glenn said that this article was "homework" for tonight... but I couldn't get through it.

I was interested to read what the "strategy" for the Weather Underground was. But the manifesto was pissing me off, and I just wasn't able to analyse it professionally.

What I gathered was that nobody would believe in Socialism unless they also belived that "Imperialism" was failing. Ergo; the strategy seems to be to point out at every chance that "Imperialism" is the cause of all social ills, and that "Imperialism" is failing.

Of interest is the notion that any problem that affects you should be construed as "Imperialism" when in fact no evidence for American Imperialism exists (did we get any oil from Iraq? Did we help out in Haiti after the earthquake?)

What puzzed me was the equation of "external" colonies of American Imperialism (such as viet Nam in the '60's) and the "internal colony" of black Americans. WTF? That is a stretch even for Bill Ayers and Co.

Normally, I would ignore this kind of revolutionary crap, but Glenn asked us to take a look at it. I did my level best, but I couldn't stand it any longer. I am looking forward to his analysis tomorrow night.

Back in the 60's the Weathermen were accurately reported by the media to be criminals. Today the term is more accurately termed - terrorists. I remember the bombing of the police Station and the fervor that it caused. I was in my teens and didn't believe this could happen in our country. Now in the 21st Century they sit in the seat of power - the White House. Their belief system was not taken seriously then, but we cannot ignore it today. This cancer has grown, but it still needs to be removed. Time for everyone (Republican, Democrat, Independent, black, white, red and yellow - all Americans, and those who hope to be).
The Weatherman were serious then, and they are dangerous now.

Subject: Submit and Die
I never thought of myself as an imperialist.
Imperialism: Superior quality. USA is a superior nation in every sense of the word, and that is good. As in every form of existence the fittest dominates. Quality is not improved upon by tearing down the status quo, but by improving the norm. France failed when its poor dominated, and so will America. I was raised in a poor and broken home, and called white trash by teachers. Had I blamed others for my situation and waited for someone to bail me out I suppose I would still be white trash. Regardless of what your life problem is, it may not be your fault, but it is your problem. Deal with it. Submit to deception that someone else or Government can fix it, and die waiting.
